6:16 am
in fact, the future cast is indicating that by 8:00, it's making its way up through the cape. it continues through about lunchtime. showers could push as far north as, say, boston although i think 95 and points south and east have the best bet of seeing any showers. steadiest rain though is the morning. then in the afternoon we start to taper things off. by evening, we actually start to clear the skies just a touch. you can see right now over boston the camera is shaking just a touch. because we have some pretty strong winds out of the north at about 12 miles an hour. it is currently 38 degrees in boston. but it makes it feel more like 30 degrees. that's that wind chill value, what you dress for. wind chill values are in the 30's and 20's in most locations. as you can see these winds are anywhere from 10 to 15 miles an hour right now. and that is where they're going to stay. on the cape and the islands, it will be windy through the afternoon with winds sustained up to about 20 miles an hour and
6:17 am
hour. so it's a windy day. it's a cool one. it's a cloudy one. only making it really into the low to mid 40's for high temperatures and then tonight we drop back into the 20's and 30's i think we're going to clear the skies just a touch. there may be some areas of fog developing and then tomorrow we do it all over again with temperatures in the mid 40's to a few even upper 40's for highs. another chance for rain is going to come on thursday. it's also dealing with another coastal low that could bring a couple of showers and then friday we'll see some clouds. we're watching another system. that's a warm front. so with that is is going to actually do is bring in warmer air so we're in the mid 50's by friday, upper 50's by saturday and 60's. emily: it keeps getting better. olessa: 70's by monday? danielle: you're pushing your luck. olessa: good morning, everyone. so far it's a quiet start on the roads. that volume. there's a live look at the zakim and the leverett connector as
